Hey all! so recently I added a DIY yeast and sugar CO2 generator with a bamboo chopstick diffuser. I noticed that there are have a lot of bubbles that wouldn't pop at the surface of the water. I've been try to remove the bubbles for a period of a few days thinking there might be some residue on the surface that is keeping these bubbles around. Unfortunately, it has still been foamy on the surface.

I have two cheap HOB filters (topfin 10 and 20) running. Anyone know what the problem might be or if this is normal?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The only thing I can think of is sometimes when I use extra stress coat, I get a few bubbles.

Try raising the filter position higher from the water level. Definitely solved it for me before.

The excess bubbles in your tank are being caused by bamboo FARTS !

most likely protein at the surface that's keeping the bubbles in, I wouldn't be concerned about it. unless you have a surface skimmer in your tank there's always going to be a thin layer of protein at the surface. Even HOBs don't help with the protein much as they just tend to concentrate away from the filter itself.
I have these bubbles at the surface even with my pressurized setups and have had this for years - so unless your fish as gasping or dying, you're fine.
